Good, clean fun.
28 October 1999 | by grover-4See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to see the première at the Edinburgh International Film Festival. Slightly reminiscent of Bridget Jones Diary in its wackiness, it was nothing profound or especially clever, but I couldn't help but have a good laugh.

Patsy Kensit's character should have stayed bitchy. Having her come around was just plain annoying.
